I am a coach from Canada and I have a few skaters who will be going to National Showcase this year. This will be my first trip as well as theirs. I am wondering if anyone on this board has any experience with this competition (it looks like a lot of fun!). My biggest question at the moment has to do with the introductions/descriptions they are asking for. I have been trying to get an idea from youtube what is expected but I am looking for some more advice. Do I just put the name of the song and artist. If I write a description of the theme (for dramatic) and the emotion comes across but does not actually act out the theme itself, does that take away from their mark? My specific example is a mother leaving a message or wish behind for her child (in case she is not their as the child grows up). My skater isn't actually acting out the msg but the feelings behind it. I would also love any general advice about this competition and what to expect (particularly with the differences with a regular competition such as spotlights and a smaller area to warm-up). Thanks in advance for any help!
